Run 30 mins?? I just did!!!!

I've just completed Week 8 Run 2 and with a new Olympic inspired play list I was off! Using Mapmyrun to track my progress I got to 1.6km ahead of target and started planning ahead to see if I could extend my route in case I continued at this pace. At 3.2km I was only at 20mins (usually closer to 25 mins) and as I returned to the village green my friends who started Week 5 today were just heading home and I still had about 8 mins of running to do. So I did my old five min loop which only took about 3 mins and finished off running round and round the green waiting for my husband to appear to collect me enroute to walking our six dogs. I finally had a look at mapmyrun and it said I'd run 30.14 and I came to an immediate stop lol.

I was three songs in to my run when Heather Small's Proud came on and when she asked "what have you done today to make you feel proud?" I have to admit to a little tear and a shout out of "this"!! Well it was only 7am!

Off on holiday this Saturday so will need to find a new route for my week 9 runs!
